As an owner-customer of the OP cooperative bank, you are entitled to substantial discounts on your policies and many other benefits.

Owner-customers’ insurance benefits

  • As a prime customer, a 7% discount on almost all home and family policies. If you are between 18 and 27 years of age, a 21% discount on the above types of insurance. 
  • If you are both an OP cooperative bank owner-customer and a Pohjola prime customer, you get an additional 3% discount on insurance premiums. Depending on your age, your total discount on insurance for home and family can be 10% or up to 24%. 

To become a Pohjola Insurance prime customer, you need to have insurance policies from three different categories. There are a total of five insurance categories, including home insurance, car insurance and continuous travel insurance. 

If you are over 70 and our owner-customer, you can become a prime customer with insurance from just two categories, such as statutory motor liability insurance and voluntary comprehensive motor vehicle insurance.

NewLife is a life insurance of 20,000 euros for parents of children under 12 months in the event of the parent’s death. This gives the surviving parent a better chance to carry on or to provide for the child’s education, for example.

We offer NewLife insurance to both parents separately for the next 12 months of the child’s life for free. After this, the insurance will continue automatically subject to a premium.

You can take out the policy soon after the baby is born until the child turns 1 year. The policy does not require completing a health declaration form. The insurance is issued by OP Life Assurance Company Ltd.

If you are an OP cooperative bank owner-customer or Pohjola Insurance prime customer, you will receive a free 45% increase in the amount of insurance compensation. The rate of the increase will be confirmed every year and is valid for one year at a time.

Life insurance will help your loved ones financially if you die due to illness or injury. When determining compensation, we will pay your beneficiaries compensation with a 45% increase. For example, if the benefit to be paid under life insurance is 20,000 euros, we will pay your beneficiaries 29,000 euros. You can take out life insurance either as single or joint cover with your loved one. The insurance is issued by OP Life Assurance Company Ltd.

As an OP cooperative bank owner-customer, you get a deductible benefit of up to 250 euros on MyHome Insurance.

Your deductible is waived or reduced when your property suffers damage covered under MyHome Insurance due to fire, natural phenomena or theft and the compensation paid exceeds the deductible you have selected.

For example, if a bicycle worth 600 euros is stolen and your deductible is 250 euros, you pay no deductible thanks to the deductible benefit. In the same situation, if your deductible is 500 euros, you pay just 250 euros (500 – 250) thanks to the deductible benefit.

Product Protection Insurance gives six-month protection for credit and debit purchases made with a credit card. Free Product Protection Insurance is included in all owner-customer OP-Visa, OP-Visa Gold, OP-Visa Platinum and OP Duo cards. The insurance is also valid for joint cards when the principal cardholder is an owner-customer.
